American Democracy: Is There an App for That?
"Something snapped for me ... I realized the future of peer-to-peer organizing and collective action was going to be online." -- Matt Mahan, CEO, Brigade
Congress is in perpetual gridlock, voter participation is near all-time lows, and citizens' distrust of government is near all-time highs. But what if there were a way to use technology to change all that?
We're living in a time when apps have changed the way we do almost everything. There are apps to help you shop, hail a ride, and even find love. And as it turns out, in this historic year for American democracy, there are apps for that too. Can these companies turn political antipathy into profits? The only thing at stake is the future of American Democracy.
